Yom Kippur- Mincha & Ne’elah

October 5, 2022 @ 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm

Website / Zoom Link : Click Here

Read about Yom Kippur Mincha, the afternoon service, which includes the reading of Jonah, and Ne’elah,the closing service, here.

This is also typically the service in which the Myron Samuelson Memorial Neilah Honor is given to a member of the congregation in recognition of their commitment of time and energy to Ohavi Zedek.

The 2022 | 5783 recipient is Naomi Barell, an OZ member for more than 20 years.

Having started as a teacher in our Hebrew School 24 years ago, Naomi served as OZHS Principal and is currently the synagogue’s Director of Youth Education. She is recognized both in-house and by USCJ for innovative programming. Creator and teacher in the two-year Jewish Journeys alternative ed program, now in its third cycle, Naomi also created and runs both the NADAV Teen Internship program, now in its sixth year, and the two-year-old summer day camp program. She is married to Jade Kaplan, the only female mohel (mohelet) in the State of Vermont. They live on a farm with six goats, 11 chickens and three cats. Of their four children, two are currently living in Israel.

Naomi says, “I remember spending time during High Holiday services as a child counting all the women’s hats, standing on the pews to see the shofar being blown, and the pride I had standing next to my father in services during Neilah when I was old enough to do so.”
